If you study Buddhism and learn to accept the impermanence of all things, you don't need to do backups anymore.

I'm curious about your laptop styles. Everyone, take a picture of your laptop lid and share. Are you a sticker person or not? Boost like crazy

You know how something can be 'over-engineered'? Well, I think some things are over-mathematicianed.
This bouncy ball, on sale for a couple of quid next to the tills at Mothercare, is a fine example. It's made of six rubber threads, woven together to make a shape with dodecahedral symmetry, such that each face has five different colours. Why six threads? So it can embody the outer automorphism group of \(S_6\)!
It was invented by Dick Esterle. This is my daughter's one; my dog has a bigger one.

So RMS doesn't seem to be having much problem with Twitter: stallman.org/twitter.html

You guys got problems with it? I understand Mastodon is superior.

Settling in with the invasive OS.

I hope I won't get panicked with this phone. May be installing OOS was a bad decision.

Already not feeling comfortable knowing everything is being logged. Also, I forgot to remove the photos I took in Omni, and now they're with Google because Google photos.

For this weekend, I'll use OxygenOS with all Google shit. Will go back to OmniROM again on Monday.

I will get to see what these people have done.

We've now enabled accepting US$ donations on #liberapay. Still unsure how exactly this will work out in practice but we'll figure it out as we go. :-)

The year is 2040. It has been the year of the linux desktop for eight years in a row. Everyone uses completely libre RISC-V processors on entirely libre laptop designs. Nobody knows how to get a file off of a QEMU image yet.

I just interviewed William Gibson in Vancouver. The future may be unevenly distributed, but Neuromancer's author has fenced some atemporal cyberpunk-continuum to Silver Spook. (Still mindfucked that he agreed tbh)

Also, I believe I may have the only recording of Gibson saying, "Mother fucker", and with full 70's-Ramones-punk attitude, also.

You can find the silver spook podcasts here: youtube.com/user/twiliteminota
